In my early 20’s I was lucky enough to visit, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Singapore and various European locations. However since having children the travelling took a back seat and we spent time visiting various parts of the UK. Last year however we took the children to Crete and to Finland, which has given me the travel bug. It’s made me think about places I would like to visit. Ok, it’s not going to all happen right now, but there are so many beautiful places in the world to visit, it’s hard to have a small bucket list.
My travel bucket list
I have often read about families selling everything up and going travelling for as long as possible and as much I this would be amazing, I just don’t think we would be brave enough to do it. However, I have put together my travel bucket list, of 3 destinations that I would love to visit.
I have friend who have visited Bali and just listening to them talk about this paradise location makes me want to visit. Bali is one of the many islands found within Indonesia, it is home to about 4 million people and well know for it’s culture and spirituality. There is a range of landscapes from sandy beaches, to mountains, hills and rugged coast lines. Bali has a wealth of culture and history, it’s a great location for both relaxation and adventure. Bali is a brilliant destination for water sports and well as spiritual retreats. Bail is on my bucket travel list because whatever you are looking for Bali has it.
The island of Mauritius is set in the Indian Ocean, it is very popular destination with honeymooners. Mauritius has those picture perfect turquoise waters and white sand beaches, perfect for spending your days enjoying cocktails and enjoying swimming in the warm waters. Mauritius also is great for water sports.
The island of Mauritius isn’t just about beaches and swimming, it is home to amazing cuisine, history, culture. There is also the possibility to travel around the island to different locations, the Botanical gardens, rum distillery, navel museums and not forgetting snorkelling on the coral reefs around the island. The island has everything you could want from a paradise destination holiday.
Top of my travel bucket list is Thailand, a place I have wanted to visit for years. I have many friends who have visited Thailand on their travels, I also have a friend who is wanting to move over to Thailand to live. I however am drawn to Thailand for its tropical climate, diverse range of lifestyles, culture, cities, history, paradise beaches and the possibility to island hop.
Thailand offers secluded retreats for that time of relaxation away from the busy tourist areas. The little islands of Thailand are all so very beautiful each offering something different. If you are wanting the busier night life then that can be found in Patong or the capital of Bangkok were you can find more of that city life, with apartment builds and hotels, lots of restaurant and shopping.
